Dec 4, 2012 —  We all know shopping during the holiday season can be stressful, so you might as well make the shopping experience as enjoyable as possible! One way is to do something different this year by checking out these lavish holiday shopping markets for all your gift-giving needs.

All across the world, temporary markets are set up for you to find original and often handmade gifts for your loved ones. These are not macabre mall experiences! In fact, they can even be downright romantic ventures, like the Christmas Market on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, when the famous street lights up its trees and offers Parisians the chance to shop at one of the 160 wooden chalet stalls.

From the Union Street Holiday Festival in San Francisco, to the Downtown Holiday Market in Washington, DC, to Chicago’s Randolph Street's Holiday Market, holiday shopping markets offer a treasure trove of buying options sure to help complete anyone’s gift-giving list.

The Munich Christkindlmarkt is the king of them all. I was lucky enough to be in Munich in December and the 2 things I remember from that trip are this market and skiing Mt. Zugspitze and both were pretty awesome! There are so many nutcrackers you can buy...so many!
